RATINGS agency Moody's does not expect negative changes in Slovakia's economic policy after September parliamentary elections.
In its regular annual report on Slovakia, Moody's suggested that the structural reforms which have been made by the current government since 1998 should limit the possibilities for negative changes.
Moody's report said that privatisation, structural reforms and the adoption of EU guidelines should circumscribe any potential for negative policy options that might be pursued following an potential victory by opposition parties, which hold a commanding lead in polls.
